[image]Anaglyph with Landsat Overlay, Mount Meru, Tanzania - NASA/JPL/NIMA
Mount Meru is an active volcano located just 70 kilometers (44 miles)west of Mount Kilimanjaro. It reaches 4,566 meters (14,978 feet) in height but has lost much of its bulk due to an eastward volcanic blast sometime in its distant past, perhaps similar to the eruption of Mount Saint Helens in Washington State in 1980. Mount Meru most recently had a minor eruption about a century ago. The several small cones and craters seen in the vicinity probably reflect numerous episodes of volcanic activity...

[image]Radar Image with Color as Height: Tokyo, Honshu, Japan - NASA/JPL/NIMA
Much of Honshu, Japan's largest island, is seen in this image generated from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data. The nation of Japan is made up of four main islands and several smaller ones. Together they comprise a total land area of 374,744 square kilometers (144,689 square miles), slightly less than the area of California. Forests and woodlands cover 67 percent of Japan's mostly rugged and mountainous terrain...

[image]SRTM Perspective View with Landsat Overlay: Santa Monica Bay to Mount Baden-Powell, California - NASA/JPL/NIMA, USGS
Los Angeles may be the world's entertainment capital, but it is a difficult place to locate television and radio antennas. The metropolitan area spreads from the Pacific Ocean to Southern California's upper and lower deserts, valleys, mountains, canyons and coastal plains. While this unique geography offers something for everyone in terms of urban, suburban, small-town, and even semi-rural living, reception of television and radio signals can be problematic where there is no line-of-sight to a t...

[image]Cape Town, South Africa, Perspective View, Landsat Image over SRTM Elevation - NASA/JPL/NIMA
Cape Town and the Cape of Good Hope, South Africa, appear in the foreground of this perspective view generated from a Landsat satellite image and elevation data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). The city center is located at Table Bay (at the lower left), adjacent to Table Mountain, a 1,086-meter (3,563-foot) tall sandstone and granite natural landmark. Cape Town enjoys a Mediterranean climate but must deal with the limited water supply characteristic of that climate...

[image]SRTM Stereo Pair with Landsat Overlay: Los Angeles to San Joaquin Valley, California - NASA/JPL/NIMA
California's topography poses challenges for road builders. Northwest of Los Angeles, deformation of Earth's crust along the Pacific-North American crustal plate boundary has made transportation difficult. Direct connection between metropolitan Los Angeles (image lower left) and California's Central Valley (image top center) through the rugged terrain seen on the left side of this image was long avoided in favor of longer, but easier paths...

[image]Richat Structure, Mauritania, Perspective View, Landsat Image over SRTM Elevation - NASA/JPL/NIMA
This prominent circular feature, known as the Richat Structure, in the Sahara desert of Mauritania is often noted by astronauts because it forms a conspicuous 50-kilometer-wide (30-mile-wide) bull's-eye on the otherwise rather featureless expanse of the desert. Initially mistaken for a possible impact crater, it is now known to be an eroded circular anticline (structural dome) of layered sedimentary rocks...

[image]SRTM Perspective View with Landsat Overlay: San Fernando Valley, California - NASA/JPL/NIMA
The San Fernando Valley (lower right of center) is part of Los Angeles and includes well over one million people. Two major disasters have occurred here in the last few decades: the 1971 Sylmar earthquake and the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Both quakes caused major damage to homes, freeways, and other structures and included major injuries and fatalities. The Northridge earthquake was the one of the costliest natural disasters in United States history...
